Abstract/Notes: Mnogi pedagogi, filozofi ali celo zdravniki so zaradi nezadovoljstva s tradicionalno šolo in šolskim sistemom poskušali ponuditi svoje pedagoške koncepte za izboljšanje izobraževalnega sistema. Nagnjenost k spremembi tradicionalne šole, osredotočene na vsebino, je privedla do ustvarjanja pedagoškega pluralizma, ki je v demokratični družbi neizogiben in se nenehno spreminja. Vzpostavljajo se številni pedagoški koncepti, ki se približujejo učencem in jih postavljajo v središče vzgojno-izobraževalnega procesa. Čeprav alternativno izobraževanje od 19. stoletja deluje skupaj z državnim izobraževalnim sistemom, ti modeli pogosto niso znani širšemu krogu ljudi in starši običajno niso seznanjeni s ponudbo šol, kar vodi do zavrnitve takšnega sistema izobraževanja. Da bi podrobneje pojasnili in izpostavili alternativne šole na Hrvaškem, smo najprej proučili njihov zgodovinski razvoj, in sicer v kontekstu reformske pedagogike ob koncu 19. in začetku 20. stoletja. Danes na Hrvaškem delujeta le montessori in waldorfska alternativna šola, ki sta glavni ustvarjalki pluralizma v izobraževanju, ki je še vedno v začetnih fazah razvoja. S tem razlogom je to magistrsko delo skromen prispevek k širjenju idej alternativnega izobraževanja. [Dissatisfied with the traditional school and the system, many pedagogues, philosophers or even doctors have tried to offer their pedagogical concepts to improve the education system. The tendency to change the traditional content-focused school has led to the creation of pedagogical pluralism, which in a democratic society is inevitable and constantly changing. There are numerous pedagogical concepts that are approaching students and put them at the heart of the educational process. Although alternative education has been operating since the 19th century, along with the state education system, these models are often not known to a wider circle of people, and parents are usually not familiar with what schools offer, which leads to the refusal of such an education system. In order to clarify and highlight the alternative schools in Croatia, we first examined their historical development, which was studied in the context of reform pedagogy at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Today, only montessori and waldorf alternative schools operate in Croatia, which are the main creators of pluralism in education, which is still in its early stages of development. For this reason, this task is a modest contribution to spreading the ideas of alternative education.]

Age Segregation in Schools

See More

Abstract/Notes: Evidence from ethnology, anthropology, and educational history and research indicates that age segregation is neither necessary nor natural. An examination of primate and simple human societies suggests that rigid assumptions about age segregation of the young is a recent departure from social patterns existing for millions of years. The researcher summarizes the findings of 27 empirical studies in multiage grouping in elementary schools conducted between 1948 and 1981 in the United States and Canada: multiage grouping has no consistent relationship with academic achievement, and multiage grouping has a generally benign effect on social and emotional development. Naturalistic and observational studies on companionship outside the classroom provide further evidence on the importance of cross-age grouping. The general pattern that emerges from these studies is one of increased competition and aggression within same-age groups and increased harmony and nurturance within more natural

The Nongraded Primary: Making Schools Fit Children

Available from: ERIC

See More

Abstract/Notes: This guidebook explains the concept of nongraded primary education and offers examples of successful programs. The first section describes the nongraded primary, which is characterized by developmentally appropriate curricula for primary age children, a heterogeneous community of learners as related to age and ability, support for continuous learning, a commitment to honoring the development of the whole child, and active student involvement. Proponents of the nongraded primary believe that it provides an opportunity for children to succeed rather than fail, enhances cooperation, and increases levels of community support. The second section outlines the changing roles of teachers, principals, central office staff, superintendents, local boards of education, parents, and school and community groups. Suggestions are offered for successful multiage classrooms, as well as teaching strategies for mixed-age grouping and steps for organizing the transition from a traditional to a nongraded

English Language Learners and Special Education Students in Montessori Schools: The Case for Push-In Services

Available from: National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS)

See More

Abstract/Notes: Both education research and federal mandates point toward the desirability of well-implemented inclusion programs for English language learners (ELLs) and special education students. Within an inclusion model, bringing interventionists to the general education classroom, rather than separating students for support services, is increasingly viewed as an optimal model for supporting students with special educational needs. The logic of the Montessori method uniquely situates its classrooms both to support and benefit from a push-in model of special education and ELL instruction.
